the more days(nights) in a row that we plow snow. Routine is very important for an efficient night, where you don’t go crazy going back and forth keeping the worlds office workers fancy shoes dry for their work day.
Do I ever get a thank you? Does anyone ever say, wow! that plow monkey did an amazing job, the cuffs on my dockers never got any snow on them as I walked from the car to the office door this morning.! Would a greeting card with some random flowers on it be too much?
no. I think not.
All it takes is: “thank you plow monkey, thank you for your back and forth, moving the snow from where I park to somewhere else”
The worst part of the job is when we are plowing a HUGE snowstorm and we are still out there when commerce opens again for the day and we get to dodge people who are trying finish their caffeine fuelled 2 hour snowstorm commute, and just decide to park their right where I am headed, leaving me no choice but to pile the snow up against their car doors once they head into their warm cushy office.
Anyway. I’m not bitter. really.
Here you go, commuting office worker. I did this for you last night.
It would be polite of you to say thank you. Don’t you think? I bet your effin barista got a thank you this morning and all they did was pour you a $6.00 latte.
I’ll take the Garmin tonight (forgot last night) and the heartrate strap, as well as the little Green Camera for some in-truck video and grumpy half wit commentary. And maybe some singing.
Running blog content. Someone went running somewhere today, look at the list on the left. Especially his and hers… they are both really good blogs. over there. Go. And, sorry for the delay in getting the ‘Original Inspirational’ contest survey up. As soon as it stops snowing, I promise it’ll be up…. ..
And it’s beginning to look a LOT like Christmas… this is through the living room window. I like the reflection of the lamp. It looks warm and cozy…
We are back on the plow route at 8pm tonight.
I am thinking of this while I plow… just to stay a little sane while going back and forth…
ahhhh… much better.
